To Set your own static IP address......

 RIGHT-click on "My Network Places"
select "Properties" (of the network)
RIGHT-click on "Local Area Connection"
select "Properties" (of the LAN connection)
In the dialog box window, scroll down to, and select, "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
select "Properties" (of TCP/IP)
select "Use the following address"
fill in the static IP address you want, (i.e. 192.168.1.131), subnet mask(255.255.255.0) and default gateway information (usually the address of router or switch 192.168.1.1, or similar)
select "Use the following DNS server addresses"
fill in correct DNS server IP addresses. (different depending on how the customer's site was set up)
click "Okay"
click "Okay"

Yep, that should work for you.

Until you come to a network where someone else has your static address, in which case you're just toast.

Again, it'll work as long as the following three conditions are met:

1) The network(s) you're using is/are 192.168.1.0/24.
2) The network(s) you're using has/have a consistent default gateway address.
3) No one else on the network has the same IP address as you.

192.168.1.777 won't work.  If you're trying to be cute in saying 192.168.4.9, don't be cute.

192.168.1.77 will work, as long as no one else has that address assigned to them.  See condition #3 above.

Creating an OSPF network that automatically (dynamically) reroutes network traffic over other connections to prevent network downtime.
Configuring network clients can be a chore, especially if there are a large number of them or a lot of itinerant users.  DHCP dynamically manages this process, much to the relief of users and administrators alike!
